World Table Tennis Championships - Day 3
Charlotte Still Standing
31st May 2017
All Welsh participation ended on day 3 of the competition as Charlotte Carey, our only survivor, lost out to Kristin Silbereisen (World Ranked 62) 4/1 in the last 128 round. Charlotte couldn't get into the first 2 sets losing 5/11 and 7/11, but did manage to win the 3rd to bring the tie closer 11/7. The German stepped it up and when she won the final 2 sets 7/11 and 8/11 it was game, set and match to the number 37 seed in Dusseldorf.
For Charlotte it's on to Brisbane for the Australian Open in July. Chloe will head to the World Student Games in August in Taiwan. Additionally, Dan & Callum will play at the Oostende Masters in Belgium this August. This is all preparation for the European Championships in Luxembourg 13-17th September 2017.
World Table Tennis Championships - Day 2
Charlotte Still Standing
30th May 2017
Charlotte Carey has made it into the main draw (last 128) of the women's singles after 2 fine qualification wins vs Dominica Republic and Lebonon opponents. Charlotte will now face the number 37 seed (62 in the World) Kristin Silbereisen of host nation Germany on table 2 which is the showcourt. This match is bound to be on TV so make sure you check it out.
The day started with 2 double loses. First Charlotte and Chloe lost out to an Indian pair 3/1 and Dan & Callum followed suit with a 3/0 loss against Spain. These were both very difficult matches.
Chloe then couldn't find her best game and lost out to Italian Piccolin 0/4 in her 2nd group match and therefore ended her competition after not being able to compete in the mixed due to the flight delay.
Another shining light was the last 64 result of Dan and Charlotte in the mixed doubles. It was a very tough ask for them to beat the number 3 seeds of Sweden (Karlsson & Elkholm) but getting there was also hard. They beat Indonisia 3/2 with the finest of margins (12/10 in the 5th) after coming from behind. The scores aginst the Swedes in the last 64 were 9/11, 7/11, 4/11, 6/11.
World Table Tennis Championships - Day 1
The Team Arrive!!!
29th May 2017
Finally, they managed to get here! Chloe, Callum and Dan joined Charlotte in Dusseldorf to participate at the WTTC in what could have been quicker to go to Australia!
It was worth waiting for too, as Chloe won her singles as did Charlotte, to set up 2 big games tomorrow for both girls. Dan and Charlotte won through to the last 64 of the mixed doubles beating Indonsia 3/2. Callum and Dan are also still very much alive in the men's doubles beating the Finalnd/Venezuala combo in their encounter.
Callum and Dan played 2 strong Egyptians respectively and were unable to get into the matches as needed. Both lost out 0/4.
It continues tomorrow...
